The man at the heart of Fondation du Dr Julien

Expanding the horizons of medicine

“ We get to know each other by talking and sharing – first toys, then deeper thoughts and feelings. We establish a connection and then we start working together to find solutions. This is what community social pediatrics is all about. It’s an approach based on science, but it’s also an art – the art of engaging, listening, comforting, supporting. ”
